Watched Jamie Kennedy and Michael Addis’ hilarious documentary about what else, Hecklers on Showtime on Demand last night (go quick as it is only up there a few more days).
The movie is about those who heckle and confronting them on why they get off on it. Whether it be at a comedy club, a film critic who goes beyond critiquing the film and has to take personal shots at the actor, or bloggers.
One guy in it said there are two types of hecklers at a comedy club. Those who want to be a part of the act and those who want to fuck it up. I guess the same could be said for bloggers. Somehow being anonymous or at least behind the safety of the web, we feel we are more entitled not only to share our opinion but to bring others down personally at the same time. Personally I enjoy the banter of both on here…whether you like my stuff or not, you took the time to visit.
I thought it was hilarious that Perez Hilton was on there confronting his critics (hecklers) for saying he isn’t a real journalist. Someone who takes personal potshots is upset when someone does it to him? Heard recently he went to a Criss Angel magic show and was twittering throughout how much it sucked. At the end of the show Criss had him stand up and called him a douchebag asshole. Classic. Heckling and Heckler is OK with me.
Here’s the movie trailer.
